Daniel Moore started his collegiate career as a walk-on at Indiana in 2008. A student who came in to play when IU was at it’s bare bones of a roster, a lot of respect has to go to Moore and his effort he’s put forth for a non-scholarship player. That is until last year when he finally earned that extra scholarship that was banked for this season.
A 2008 graduate of Carmel High School, Moore was a good student athlete coming out of high school but never had any big time offers. His senior year he made first-team All State, Hamilton County Player of the Year and was also a first-team All-State soccer player. So he knows what it takes to be successful. As a freshman he played in all 31 games and started several times through that year. In his sophomore season his games were cut to 28, but he was still a guy leaned on relatively heavily to handle the ball in tough situations.
His expectations for this season are a little less than last year because of a similar effort player that is more talented coming to the team in Remy Abell. Expect Moore’s minutes per game to drop below 5 if Abell can prove that he can hang in the college game. Unless Moore improves himself as a scoring threat to go with a pretty decent passing game (106 career assists) Abell can provide everything Moore has.
